Seasonal Wedding Flowers

Decorating with seasonal flowers is a great way to save on your budget and capture the essence of your wedding season!

Spring (March, April, May)

Spring time is a time of new life, new growth and new beginnings. Spring bouquets can mirror this concept with using bright vibrant colors and more greenery that its other counterpart seasons. Pinks, Greens, Yellows, Pastels, are all common colors for this season. Most common theme in the Spring is Garden Wedding.

  • Pink Rose

  • Pink Gerbera

  • Dahlia

  • Orchids

  • Lily

  • Tulips

  • Cherry Blossom

Summer (June, July, August)

When most of us think Summer, we think Sun; so bright Yellow is a common flower color. Other common colors are blues and greens. Mixtures of whites and blues can create the allusion of coolness during these hot summer months. Most common theme in the summer is Beach/Outdoors.

Summer Flowers:

  • Yellow Gerbera

  • SUNflowers

  • Hydrangea

  • Poppy

  • Freesia

  • Snapdragon

Fall (Sept., Oct., Nov.)

Fall is all about the colors. The best way to complement a Fall wedding is to mimic the rich colors of Fall. Using deep reds, oranges, and yellows against greens, muted and rusted colors draws the eye and photographs well. This season allows for pops of color. Most common theme in the fall is Barn or Winery.

Fall Flowers

  • Roses

  • Dahlia

  • Orange Gerbera

  • Chrysanthemum

  • Celosia

Winter (Dec., Jan., Feb.,)

Most winter weddings are indoors; you may want to capture the essence of winter with an all-white palette. Less green is common to mirror the lack of it during the winter months. The white can also be paired with vibrant reds for a holiday theme. Most common theme in the Winter is Winter Wonderland or Holiday.

Winter Flowers

  • White/Red Roses

  • Ranunculus

  • Red Gerbera

  • Carnations

  • Orchids


Fillers such as Queen Anne's Lace, Waxflower, Solidago, Eucalyptus and Babies Breath can be found year-round. Filler flowers/stems are important to provide more greenery to a bouquet or to make a bouquet look finished and clean. Items, such as broaches, lace, or leaves/acorns can also be used as fillers (Fall).
